Though Bernard wishes to use Annabelle to propel his family up the social ladder, his son does not to marry her, preferring instead to live as the wild, single life he is accustomed to. With this, Bernard serves his son an ultimatum: marry Annabelle, or make do without family funds. Having no choice, Reginald consents and enters into a hostile engagement in which the prospective bride and groom are openly antagonistic, each one resenting the other for their current state of affairs while their respective fathers revel in their suffering.
 
So begins an intoxicating tale rife with dark secrets, deception, and the trials of love-a story in which very little is as it seems.

This is a short easy read that on the surface looks like every other light regency romance. However there is a really surprising twist at the end of this one that really sets it apart and changes the way you look at the whole story. I will not ruin it....but pick it up, I think you will like it.
